“The StreetLights team and our partners put extensive thought into designing a boutique hotel-inspired atmosphere, and we are excited to reveal the result to future residents,” StreetLights CEO Doug Chesnut said in a prepared statement. “For a neighborhood rich in culture and the arts like Houston’s Museum District, we wanted to give the modern apartments an old-world elegance. The project came together just as we envisioned with a design that correlates with the existing community.”
